So... My neighbor was over visiting a little while ago, she tried these little eggplant patties, and loved them. So I figured that the next time I make them, I can do a post.
If you are Russian, or know someone Russian, you probably had these...
But for all the other folks out there, let me tell you... they are GOOOOOOOOOD!!
First you need some eggplant.
I usually make 2 for out little family (they are super addictive)
wash and slice up your eggplant (about 1 cm thick):
Season and cook the eggplant- any way you wish:
This time I grilled mine (drizzled with olive oil) , it being summer and all:
Prepare the garlic mayo
1/2 cup mayo
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
3 minced garlic cloves
Then you need some tomatoes and baby dill:
I used 3 vine tomatoes for my 2 medium sized eggplants:
Prepare your platter-
(I always line my platter with napkins to soak up all the grease, Since I grilled my eggplant, there wasn't much grease, but if you deep fried it, this step is a must)
I have also done this with zucchini.
I fried the zucchini and then did the rest of the steps.
(you will need to dice up the tomatoes when you place them on top)
It makes cute and yummy bite size appetizers
